Healthy Breakfast Banana Bread Recipe

As the name of this blog probably already suggests, I wouldn’t exactly call myself a health freak. But, unfortunately I do suffer from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrom) which for me personally means I have to eat a lot of fiber rich foods. This recipe is a simple way to get those extra fibers right at the start of your day.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Course Breakfast
Servings 1 loaf


  • loaf pan
  • parchment paper


  • 3 overripe bananas
  • 200 g apple sauce sugar-free
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 30 g oats
  • 35 g currants
  • 15 g flax seed
  • 35 g pecan nuts
  • 2 eggs
  • 200 g whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
I still don’t bake that often, but whenever I have some overripe bananas lying around I’d rather put them to good use than just throw them away! Most of those times I’ll use them in a loaf of homemade banana bread. I use a basic recipe to which I add varying ingredients, depending on what I’m in the mood for or what I have lying around the house. For this specific recipe, I decided to add some oats to make it extra suitable for breakfast.


How to bake a Healthy Breakfast Banana Bread

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F or 175°C.
  • Mash your overripe bananas in a big bowl with a fork.
  • Add the apple sauce to the mashed bananas in the bowl, and mix gently with the fork.
  • Add your cinnamon & 2 tbsp of sugar to the bowl, and mix.
  • Then add your currants, flax seed, pecan nuts & 2/3 of the oats to the bowl and mix with the fork. The other 1/3 of the oats we’ll use for topping of the banana bread later on.
  • Crack 2 eggs and mix them into the banana bread batter.
  • Add the whole wheat flour to the batter and stir once more.
  • Line your loaf pan with parchment paper and pour the batter into the pan.
  • Finish the banana bread off by sprinkling the rest of the oats on top and drizzling some maple syrup over it.
  • Bake in the oven for about 60 minutes on upper and lower heat, and check up on it after about 50 minutes. Use a fork or toothpick in the center of your bread, if it comes out clean, it’s done.
  • Take the banana bread out of the oven and let it cool in its pan for about 10 minutes. Then transfer to a wire rack to let it cool down further.
  • Enjoy your banana bread for breakfast, or as a snack! 😉
